DOGS Trust Salisbury is looking for four forever homes for these lovely pooches this October.

Claire Rowe, Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Salisbury, said: “The four adorable dogs looking for their forever homes this month are Zac, Rocky, Hector and Rex.

"They’re all very different but the one thing they have in common is the desire to find a loving family and a sofa to call their own."


Zak is a three-year-old Border Collie. He is a sensitive soul but once he knows you, he can be quite affectionate and forms a loving bond.

Zak would need to be the only dog in the home but would like to have the company of doggy walking friends when out.

He’s sensitive to a lot of loud noise so needs a quiet, adult-only home with no neighbouring children or dogs as this will worry him.

Salisbury Journal:


Rocky is an energetic six-year-old Lurcher who has a real zest for life.

He'd love an active lifestyle where he can be given lots of opportunities to exercise and run around.

He will need a secure garden with no neighbouring dogs but could share his home with secondary school age children.

Rocky's lots of fun and looking for owners who can keep up with him.

Salisbury Journal:


Hector is a seven-year-old Foxhound cross who loves to put his nose to good use and loves to explore everything he can sniff when out and about.

He will happily share his walk with calm dogs but would prefer to be the only dog in the home.He thoroughly enjoy a fuss and loves to lap up the attention.

His new owners will need to be calm and patient whilst he finds his feet and give him plenty of time to settle in.

Salisbury Journal:


Rex is a one-year-old German Shepherd-Labrador cross.

He’d love to find a home with a confident but calm dog who will show him the ropes.

Rex is a very sweet boy who can find things a little overwhelming at times so will need patient owners who are willing to go at his pace.

He will need his own safe space in his new home where he can retreat to when visitors arrive and would love for his new family to visit him several times to get to know him before taking him home.

How to rehome a dog

Dogs Trust Salisbury isn’t open for public browsing, they’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with new processes in place to keep staff, visitors and adopters safe.  

Claire added: "If you think you could give an of these dogs the forever homes they are looking for, please go to to start the virtual adoption process.”

Dogs Trust Salisbury holds Information Days every Sunday.

If you would like to take a look around the centre, meet members of the team and see the dogs spending time with their canine carers, go to to book a place.
